Roasted Grape and Sweet Cheese Phyllo Galette

Faced with an abundant crop of grapes, I had to come up with a creative way to use them. It’s fun to work with phyllo dough, and it bakes up golden and flaky. In this recipe, a layer of orange-kissed cream cheese is topped with roasted grapes. Then a bit of honey is drizzled on, and a sprinkle of coarse sugar is added to finish it off. You can use berries for this too. —Kallee Krong-McCreery, Escondido, California

Asparagus Galette with Goat Cheese

This asparagus galette could be an appetizer or a side dish, or you could top it with an egg and serve it as an entree. While I prefer to make my own whole wheat crust to add a nutty flavor, you could use a refrigerated crust instead. Cooking all vegetables before assembling the galette adds flavor and expels most of the moisture, so the crust gets crispy in the oven. If you want to save time, use caramelized onion jam instead of caramelizing the leeks. —Kellyn Kemmerer, Baltimore, Maryland
